I have an old Xybernaut wearable computer. I belive it was the first made by the company. I know next to nothing about the thing but I was told that some people on this site may be interested in it. I'll submit some pictures if you guys are interested in or know anything about these.

I'm taking pictures as we speak. I am looking to sell/trade it. I'm in the market for a decent laptop.. Pictures are coming up in a few minutes

Was this the one CBC did the special on, with video, and are you at U of Toronto ? Please do submit videos ! Cool stuff.

Would you happen to have a link to the video?

I'll take a video of it booting...
I'll apologize ahead of time though, I'm using a camera phone for the pictures and video so the quality isn't the best.

I'm not at U of Toronto... I'm from Virginia ;)

I went to a local used computer shop and they said I could get about $500 for it.. So, I would say something around that.. but, then again I don't know how much it's REALLY worth..

I believe they steered you wrong. Tha actual value (based on recent eBay sales) is more like about half that (or less). I mean, wearables are way kewl, but that's a leeetle high, even for a Xybernaut. (I'd like it better if it had the little eyeball display/headgear thinggy).
